Mixing technology and practice

“That’s us, dude!” 
- Keanu Reeves, as Ted “Theodore” Logan

Whoa! Excellent! 

I’ve had impermanence on my mind recently. I’ve talked about it here before but it’s worth bringing up again. After all, it’s one of the most important things the Buddha taught. Here’s the thing: my life is totally excellent. Where I find myself getting into trouble is when I cling to its excellentness
